Our Bespoke Services
Written Business Valuations
Our permanent presence in the business arena means we are well placed to provide a valuation of a business. There are many facets that can affect a valuation, besides the obvious financial aspects. Examples are the general economic condition, the current competition, business reputation and standing, location, the urgency, etc.
A formal and properly structured business valuation should prove to be of value when shared with interested buyers.
Formal Financial Accounts
The accounts of a business are often a major component in a buyer reaching a decision and offer price. The accounts are usually compiled for records and tax reasons, not usually as a sales document. We can provide feedback at the start of the campaign on how these accounts look and how best to discuss them and present them.
Liaising with Third Parties
It can be daunting liaising with lawyers, financiers, landlords and other third parties when purchasing a business. Our Brokers can prepare you for such meetings and attend with you, or should it be appropriate, on your behalf.
Preparing an Inventory of Contents
Most business transactions will require the Seller to provide to the Buyer an inventory/stock list. We can attend to record the inventory/stock list and provide a cohesive list to be included in the sales documentation.
Due Diligence for Buyers
Lakey Offshore is able to undertake due diligence on behalf of the Buyer.
What is Due Diligence?
Due diligence is the act of mitigating risk by undertaking “deep-dive” investigations of a potential investment on behalf of a prospective buyer. The aim of due diligence is to confirm the accuracy of the seller’s information and hence the validity and value of the investment.
